Meet Lisa Cherry
Working with vulnerable children, whether in an educational setting or through fostering and adoption, you know what a struggle life can be for them. Those that suffer Adverse Childhood Experiences, research has proven time and time again, will face greater challenges because of the things that happened to them beyond their control.
My mission is to provide accessible, scientifically grounded knowledge and information to all those working with and around trauma, resilience and recovery.
Through understanding our attachment stories, then having practical tools to deal with children and young people living with and post trauma, we can recover in an environment that is safe for us all. Essentially we can begin the process of healing and form part of a resilient community at the same time.
Through training, keynote speaking, writing and working with people on a 1-to-1 basis, I can demonstrate how we can work together to create a meaningful and sustained transformation that has the potential to change lives.
I bring over 25 years of working in Educational and Social Care settings and a 26-year journey of recovery myself overcoming my own experiences of being in care and all that that brought with it. The personal and professional are brought together to create a holistic approach to working with vulnerability with a fundamental belief that we have the capacity to recover.
I have worked with Lisa on many occasions on workshops, talks and retreats and she has the ability to create a positive and empowering environment when often clients come feeling vulnerable, stressed or overwhelmed. She listens and provides feedback that enables those who are engaged in creating change in their lives to make decisions for themselves, for the better.Kirsten Hanlon
Lisa gave an inspiring and challenging days training to our social care staff team at Don Bosco care. She held peoples attention throughout and left them with much to think about. She is an excellent communicator who owns completely her very well researched and presented material. I will certainly seek to have her back in the future.Brian Hogan
